International Radio Festival leads the way with Blockchain for radio

The use of Blockchain technology in the audio world will be explored at the International Radio Festival’s Audio Conference in Malta on 1st November. 

Cliff Fluet will present the session and lead the way in the exploring how Blockchain can benefit the radio industry and what it might mean for audio and other creative businesses.

Cliff says the potential impact of Blockchain is “staking a claim as being the most talked-about disruptor.”

The session will explore how Blockchain can directly facilitate consumer sales and peer-to-peer transmission, allow a producer or musician to be able to track, tokenise and monetise their works including recordings, artwork, publishing and merchandise; and help ensure the protection of intellectual property.

Cliff, a digital lawyer from London-based law firm Lewis Silkin, advises clients on music-based content, branded entertainment and rights issues.

The Audio Conference is just one part of the ninth edition of the International Radio Festival.
